Appointment availability

Updated November 2023.

  • Effective November 2023, we are currently not accepting outside referrals to Infusion Services. Patients needing an iron infusion or Remdesivir antiviral therapy can still be seen:
    • To refer your patient for an iron infusion, please refer them to Hematology; Hematology will then see your patient and write orders for the iron infusion. Iron infusions for restless leg syndrome should be referred to Sleep Medicine.
    • To request Remdesivir antiviral therapy for your COVID-19 patient, you must contact the Infectious Disease team first. Reach them via the hospital operator at 206-987-2000. The infusion clinic is able to provide this therapy to all pediatric patients who are at high risk for complications from COVID-19. The current COVID-19 variants are not responsive to monoclonal antibody therapy. Thus, we are no longer offering those infusions.   

Questions? Please contact the Infusion APP at 206-987-8075 (Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
